Having operated in the USA since 1994 UPakWeShip has moved their fair share of people relocating overse1175431_708010629226306_954231872_nas to do missionary work. Many are shipping to South America and Africa but surprisingly many have moved  to Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Hats off to all you folks that volunteer to do this. Helping others for a few years for not a lot in return is awe-inspiring. UPakWeShip can’t be there with you but it can make sure you get all your belongings that you need to ship overseas, safely and at the best possible all-inclusive price.

The most common service we offer to missionaries moving overseas is our self-load 20 foot shipping container service. We can bring you a container on the back of a trailer anywhere in the USA and Canada for you to load all your items in. We will then truck it to the nearest port and ship it overseas to the nearest port, clear customs and truck it to your new home for you to unload.

In a nutshell, you pack and load and unload and we do everything else in between. All for a low cost lump sum price.

Moving Overseas on a mission is not for everyone. Here are some things to bear in mind before jumping on a plane and shipping your stuff!

You are going to be living in a different culture, mixing with them and doing the same things as they do. That means eating the same food, singing in their language, dancing with them, wearing similar clothes, trying to speak their language but still looking and feeling like the odd one out!

You quite possibly will have no cell phone, no Amazon prime, possibly no internet, no latest movies, no Hershey’s chocolate, no donuts, no car, and none of your family and friends from back home.

If you think with Gods help that you can cope with that, and overcome the challenges, you will receive immense fulfillment, be part of a great team, gain new friends and family and have an experience of a life time.

Many mission boards rely on UPakWeShip to either transport missionaries to their new overseas homes or assist with their return back to the US after completion of their contract.

Many relief and aid organizations have relied on UPakWeShip’s transportation services to ship cargo to destinations worldwide. From a small household goods international move to a large project needing to be shipped overseas, UPakWeShip has you covered. Having been in business since 1988, UPakWeShip has vast experience and knowledge and coupled with honesty and integrity linked with very keen rates, you are in very good hands with UPakWeShip.
